And Now For More Boston Globe Bashing - XXVII

Too bad you left the Boston Globe seven years ago, Bruce - you missed out on your chance to be a real paperboy:
If you're a subscriber to the Boston Globe, the person who delivered your Sunday paper might have been the same person who wrote part of it.

Fed up after nearly a week of widespread delivery problems, dozens of reporters and editors at the Globe worked until dawn Sunday morning to deliver thousands of copies of the paper.

The Globe said it was a "small gesture to show our Globe customers that we are working hard" to address the problems.

Managing editors, political columnists, sports reporters, and web producers all showed up at the printing press around midnight.

Steve Wilmsen, an editor, tweeted that "pretty much the whole Boston Globe newsroom" was present: "Paper routes for a night."

Crime reporter Evan Allen posted a picture of metro reporter Milton Valencia pointing at his front page story.

"Now he is going to deliver it," Allen said.
With a bonus picture of what a douche hipster Globie looks like:
